Third Molar Removal

Third Molar Extractions

Third molars, otherwise known as wisdom teeth, develop later than other adult teeth, usually between the ages of 17 and 25. These teeth are located in the very back of the mouth, often becoming impacted if they don't fit in the arch of the upper or lower jaw. Impaction means the tooth doesn't grow straight up; instead, it becomes encased in the jaw bone. This can create a host of problems, as it can push and crowd other teeth, making those teeth grow in improperly. Cavities can easily occur because wisdom teeth are hard to keep clean. Infection can even develop in the jaw bone. The best solution is to have them extracted as soon as they appear, before these issues and the density of the jaw bone increases, making it harder to remove them. Dr. Glass works with a board-certified oral surgeon so extractions can be done right here in our office, without you having to be referred elsewhere. IV sedation is available, administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist.

Dental Implants

What's So Bad About Losing a Tooth?

No matter how you lose a tooth – gum disease, decay, accident or some other trauma, you should consider it a huge problem. Missing even one tooth will allow your other teeth to become displaced, altering your ability to chew and process nutrients from your food. You may undergo weight loss, your facial appearance may shrink, or your speech patterns may change.
Need a replacement? Dental implants offer the optimal way to restore a missing tooth (or missing teeth). They appear so natural only your dentist will know they're not your originals.
